Anyone who enjoys hiking in the summer does not have to do without it in the winter. Many groomed hiking trails offer the possibility throughout the winter months of experiencing nature in its snow-covered grandeur right up close. Groomed paths are found above all else in valley locations and in the higher valleys. Favorite winter hiking trails include the Villa di Sopra-Oberwielenbach Valley above Perca-Percha and the Rio Molino-Mühlbach Valley above Gais. Those who would like to head higher up and get to know the mountain landscape of the Val Pusteria-Pustertal valley should get accordingly equipped and pack a pair of snowshoes into the backpack. A winter hike can also be very nicely combined with a descent by sled.
